I had typed most of this up on my latest submission, but then I realised it would be best to just stick it in a journal. XD
Lately I've been noticing a lot of people have been putting the effort into taking my pics and coloring over them.
I've added noise over the pics for a long time to prevent that, but lately people do it anyways.
And I /know/ it must take forever to erase, because it covers the whole picture.
And then they still give me credit, but it's like, klfsjd why would I add noise over the pic if I was just gunna let you recolor it anyways? ;w;
So, just be warned, I will report you if I see it, I don't find that stuff okay. :U
The only pictures that it's okay is my early 2009 Warriors pictures. That's it.
And if credit isn't properly given I'll still report it.
(By properly, I mean a link to my DA, not just "Lines by Blue," or "Credit to BlueKyoKitty")
Also, making "lineart" out of my stuff is never okay, even for the stuff I said could be colored over.
Credit given or not, if you're passing around lineart of my work I will report you.
I know I've been given this reputation as someone who allows art theft, but I really don't find it okay, and I almost alway report it when I see it. When it's just people doing it to troll, yeah, I really don't care, I'll let them have their fun. But when it's people who arn't doing it to troll and really just don't know it's wrong, that's when I report them. owo
This is NOT to say, if you see a person recoloring my stuff that I want you to throw a huge fit at them.
Just send me a link and I'll deal with it.
Or, you could politely give them the link to this journal.
You don't have to do anything beyond that.
I posted this journal for the people who are already recoloring my stuff.
Not as an excuse to get you guys to go rage at people.
Also, if it's a "troll" just leave it be, say nothing, I don't really care all that much.
And I know that now that I'm finally sticking up for my art it's going to come back and bite me in the ass, as it always does.
But whatevah, I think this journal was needed at some point.
